The Art of Disagreeing (aka Breaking Through ​Gridlock​)

October 11, 2017

Think about the last time you tried to talk with someone about politics or social issues who didn’t already agree with you.

How well did it go?

It’s getting harder and harder for us to have productive conversations about social issues that matter the most to us, which is widening the gap between Americans and ruining Thanksgiving dinners. (Unfortunately, Adele can’t fix everything).

This will be a free, two-hour workshop. Registration is required. Hang out after the event for drinks, snacks, and as few political food fights as possible.



Jason JayThis month’s speaker is Jason Jay, director at MIT Sloan Sustainability and co-author of Breaking Through Gridlock: The Power of Conversation in a Polarized World. Civic Series is bringing their workshop to the public: Jason will share clear-cut and actionable pathways for having hard conversations about issues that matter to you — whether it’s about the second amendment, healthcare reform, climate change, or others.
